From one of our leading technology thinkers and writers,
a guide through the twelve technological imperatives that
will shape the next thirty years and transform our lives.
Much of what will happen in the next thirty years is
inevitable, driven by technological trends that are
already in motion. In this fascinating, provocative new
book, Kevin Kelly provides an optimistic road map for the
future, showing how the coming changes in our lives from
virtual reality in the home to an on-demand economy to
artificial intelligence embedded in everything we
manufacture can be understood as the result of a few long
term, accelerating forces. Kelly both describes these
deep trends interacting, cognifying, flowing, screening,
accessing, sharing, filtering, remixing, tracking, and
questioning and demonstrates how they overlap and are
codependent on one another.

Ancient Greece first coined the concept of "democracy,"
yet almost every major ancient Greek thinker--from Plato
and Aristotle onwards--were ambivalent or even hostile to
democracy in any form. The explanation is quite simple:
the elite perceived majority power as tantamount to a
the dictatorship of the proletariat. In ancient Greece there
can be traced not only the rudiments of modern democratic
society but the entire.

The English East India Company was one of the most
powerful and enduring organizations in history. This book
locates the source of that success in the innovative
policy by which the Company-s Court of Directors granted
employees the right to pursue their own commercial
interests while in the firm-s employ. Exploring trade
network dynamics, decision-making processes, and ports
and organizational context, Emily Erikson demonstrates
why the English East India Company was a dominant force
in the expansion of trade between Europe and Asia, and
she sheds light on the related problems of why England
experienced rapid economic development and how the
relationship between Europe and Asia shifted in the
eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

While most people work ever-longer hours, international
statistics suggest that the average time spent on non-
work activities per employee is around two hours a day.
How is this possible, and what are the reasons behind
employees withdrawing from work? In this thought-
provoking book, Roland Paulsen examines organizational
misbehavior, specifically the phenomenon of -empty
labor," defined as the time during which employees engage
in private activities during the working day. The author
explores a variety of explanations, from under-employment
to workplace resistance. Building on a rich selection of
interview material and extensive empirical research, he
uses both qualitative and quantitative data to present a
concrete analysis of the different ways empty labor
unfolds in the modern workplace. This book offers new
perspectives on subjectivity, rationality and work
